It’s Onward & Upward for .CO!


.CO and NeustarHistoric times for us at .CO: just a few days ago we signed a “definitive agreement” whereby Neustar will become the company’s sole shareholder. I couldn’t be more proud to share this news or more excited about what the future holds in store for .CO! While this announcement may come as a surprise to some, we’ve spent the last year thoughtfully planning our long-term growth strategy. In our desire to take .CO to the next level, we are confident that now is the perfect time to join forces with Neustar. Read More >

New TLDs: Bring it!



In the next two years we are going to see a massive proliferation of new top level domain extensions (nTLDs).  Some of my favorites: .ninja, .nyc, .tech, .design, .app, and .web.  Soon there will be well over 1000 domain options coming online.

This begs the question:  How will .CO fare in this new environment?

While it may sound counter-intuitive, we’ve been HUGE advocates of the nTLD process from the very start.  But why would a relatively new TLD like .CO actually want even more competition?  After all, isn’t competing with the likes of .com and other legacy domain extensions quite enough to deal with?

Design the future of the Internet


At our office, we come to work every day to support the innovators, entrepreneurs, dreamers, and DO-ers that are building the future of the internet in the .CO online neighborhood. No one day is like another, and no rulebooks have been written for what we are doing — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

There’s just one problem. There aren’t enough of of us. Specifically, we need to add an amazing UX designer and front-end developer to help our team bring the many ideas to life that will help us to change the internet — one URL at a time. You’ll be working on projects such as,, and more that are in development — and that you’ll help us concept.

If this sounds like something that interests you, you can find more information — and specific job descriptions — here.

Yes, these openings do require you to live in Miami, but there are fates worse than that in life! Relocation will be considered for exceptional candidates.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.



As I hinted in my blog post celebrating the third anniversary of the .CO domain, I’m super excited today to announce the launch of our new company:  POP! Online LLC.

Simply put, is a ridiculously easy way to launch a business or idea online. In less than a minute, you get a custom web page and an email address powered by Google Apps – all on your very own .CO domain name. And that’s not even the half of it. Read More >

Reflecting on Three Years of .CO: Where We’ve Come From; Where We’re Going



Last week I had the opportunity to be in South Africa on business on Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday. News of the birthday was everywhere. Every magazine, every newspaper, every billboard, every person had something positive to say about him. Talk about a legacy! This man has made a huge “dent in the universe” – changing the lives of millions – and inspiring generations to come.

Birthdays are a great time for reflection. And with the third birthday of the .CO domain upon us, I can’t help but to reflect on the three years that have passed since our global launch and to wonder: What have we achieved? Have we made a dent in the universe? And what will our legacy be? Read More >
